But it's so Titanic to be iced out
Most hip hop stars are iced out by spending most of their money on jewels:
The Titanic ran into an iceberg and sank.
Being fiscally responsible in spite of messages from rappers telling you to do otherwise is a big theme on F&L II.
Lupe criticizes the overwhelming perception of what is desirable and powerful (being “iced out” and spending money extravagantly). Apart from the actual ship, “titanic” literally means something great, epic, and powerful. Something to keep in mind.
